This 30 month project is a collaboration with leading academic, industry and third sector partners to explore whether animation can be used to increase levels of mental health literacy among young people. We will be using storytelling as a research tool to both create material for the animated content that will be produced by Aardman, but also to document changing levels of mental health literacy throughout the project.
